Holy moley...Did Pods fall to the ground after that? He looks like he was running pretty fast. I wonder why they didn't even mention this in the game recap.

No, there's video on ESPN's site. He just tossed the ball back like nothing happened, though you could see him check his jaw. It was more of an overhand chop than a straight punch.

Call me a pessimist, but I really think that fan was trying to get a cheap shot in, with the effort to make it look like it could have been accidental. His hand goes right for posednik, not the ball, and then he eyes down Posednik from the catch onwards awaiting a reaction.

And why did he form a fist???

Atleast thats my take. Posednik didn't even flinch though, gotta respect that. ;-D
